I know we have a state park and waterfall called gooseberry, does anyone knows where I can purchase or go out and find gooseberries? Any info would be appreciated.
Check the locally-based farmers' markets. I was at the Mill City Farmer's Market this morning and saw a sign for gooseberries, although they were sold out by the time we got there.
I don't know if you're interested in "pick your own," but in today's Pioneer Press, Nancy Ngo has a piece called "Yours for the Picking" that discusses picking your own produce, including gooseberries at Natura Farms in Marine on St. Croix or at Rush River Produce in Maiden Rock Wisconsin.
I can't seem to add the link for Natura Farms, so here is the url: http://naturafarms.com/
Rush River Produce
200th Ave, Maiden Rock, WI 54750
There were actually some at the Rainbow at the Quarry two weeks ago. I have no idea of they're still available.
I just got back from the St. Paul Farmers Market and it seems to be peak season for gooseberries.
